Cass McCombs is a transient storyteller interested in words, music and dreams. His ninth full-length album, Tip of the Sphere, is due February 8, 2019 on ANTI- Records. In conjunction with todays album announcement, McCombs shares the albums lead single, Sleeping Volcanoes, and announces a North American tour. Tip of the Sphere follows 2016s Mangy Love. For that record, McCombs made his television debut on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and was featured in the New York Times Sunday Arts & Leisure section. It was named a Best Rock Album of the Year by Pitchfork, featured in the Washington Posts Best Music of 2016, plus many other best of 2016 lists, and was his overall most critically praised album. While most of McCombs albums have been pieced together in different studios over an extended period of time, Tip of the Sphere was recorded quickly and with a strong sense of purpose at Shahzad Ismailys Figure 8 Studios in Brooklyn. This new approach for McCombs brought his songs a raw immediacy and a special balance of compassion and experimentation with the intent of making a more consistent statement. The rock songs have more fervor, the ballads are more beautiful, the explorations more confident; the sounds of jazz and Latin music creep in through the back window. Engineered by Sam Owens (aka Sam Evian), Tip of the Sphere features the core band of McCombs (guitar, vocals), Dan Horne (bass), Otto Hauser (drums) and Frank LoCrasto (piano, organ, and more), plus a range of special guests. Tip of the Sphere recounts what has unfolded in the wake of Mangy Loves pre-inaugural prophetic themes. It presents an artist trying to make sense of it all through a relentless, ever searching creative process. Throughout Tip of the Sphere, McCombs floats through a suite of songs driven by a journeying mysticism and dark grace. The thematic centerpiece of the album, Sleeping Volcanoes, is a rousing, rock and roll number that uses a distinct lyrical approach to intensify the narrative. O
